  1. In celebration of my Six Years of Freedom, I wrote this little piece, now at seven years I re-visit my commitment to NOPE. Sazerac's Simple Guide To Freedom Desire: You must want to quit more than you want to smoke Decision: Make the decision to live life without Nicotine. Commitment: Commit wholeheartedly to live without Nicotine and intend on standing by your resolve. Choice: Choose to never smoke again, EVER. This choice will empower you in many, many ways. “Once you make a decision, the unive

  3. I quit almost three years ago and have become an advocate of Cold Turkey but, believe me, I support and encourage everybody in their precious quits. Any Quit Is A Good Quit I thought to gather some new information (in a galaxy of Misinformation) and was dismayed after googling around finding numerous instances of 'responsible experts' recommending to NOT quit cold turkey. What kind of idiotic advise is that ? Is this more Big Tobacco poisoning minds ? Big Drug companies pushing product ? Ignorance ? Today, I found a great rap about this from our Friend, Joel Spitzer Qu
  4. It was after quitting smoking, I realized how addiction had turned me into a spoiled brat. I indulged myself completely, I smoked anytime and anywhere possible. My most shameful example was after a home birth, my brand new daughter, alive and healthy, was being walked around by her father and I said to my midwifes, 'man, after 9 months and the last 12 hours, I NEED A SMOKE'. One of my midwifes asked, 'Really ?' 'Yes yes yes yes yes YES, I want a smoke !" She handed me a non filtered
  5. I started a thread almost three years ago about quitting cold turkey and how much dis-information was out there when I first quit. I was so fortunate to find Joel Spitzer. Now, it seems, the dis-information is even more ubiquitous... here is a link to WhyQuit for resources about quitting Cold Turkey and my original post from 2016, Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey I am fully aware that my choice of quitting cold turkey is not for everyone but, education about addiction and all methods of quitting should be forefront, es
  6. Hello QTrain, What helped you through your First Week without Nicotine? For me, it was: Watching The Clock and seeing 'craves' lasting a shorter and shorter time. Breathing purposefully. Satsumas. Water Saving the daily money for a pack of smokes. I kept it in a big jam jar and watched it pile up. Jumping Jacks , Dancing Wildly. House Cleaning. Determination and Desire for Freedom. I 'discovered' Joel Spitzer's videos.
  7. Dear QTrain-ers, I was thinking today about my motivations to quit smoking and to stay quit and thought I would share them, hoping y'all share your motivations in response. I consider my resolution to quit was a primary factor but, wealth and health came into play as well. I quit on a whim, a dare to myself. Unexpectedly, my immediate motivation was an inner strength I found in absolutely committing to the journey. This really helped me through the bumps, knowing I was clear in my resolve. In a more mercenary vein, wealth motivated m

  10. By the way, did you know that smoking is a main cause of Sudden Death? How's that for additional motivation? http://www.cigarettekills.com/even-one-cigarette-a-day-linked-to-sudden-death.html Smoking damages every single cell in your body!
  11. I don't really want to call them cravings, because they're nothing like the first week at all. At almost a month in, they're more like thoughts, along the lines of "I could REALLY go for a piece of chocolate cake right now." But if you don't have chocolate cake on hand, it's not a big deal. You forget about it quickly and move on. And since that day recently where I caught myself not thinking about smoking, I have longer and longer stretches of time where I don't think about it at all. But, out of the blue, these nagging thoughts of wanting a smoke pop into my brain. Had a pretty s

  14. (this is in my Blog and someone asked it be put in Discussions) Memorial Day 2016 ~ A Fine Day to Quit Smoking ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Memorial Day, originally called, Decoration Day, was born from the American Civil War. In 1868, it was designated as a day of Remembrance for those who died in service. Graves were strewn with flowers and otherwise 'decorated'. I can imagine it being a terribly somber occasion in 1868, with Civil War dead in so many towns of America at the time. It is still terribly somber. I wish there was no more war. I remember little flags st
  15. So as some of you may have known my mother and brother have been staying with us for the passed *almost* year. It wasn't just them, but their two dogs as well, to say that I had a packed house is a gigantic understatement. I didn't think of smoking once. Actually quite the opposite I despise that freaking addiction. The reason that my family had to come and stay with me is because my mother has COPD/emphysema and could no longer work and support herself (or my disabled brother). She fell on hard times waiting for disability to be approved and had to leave her house because she could no
  16. Well I have been smoking for last ten years and never felt its bad effects on health seriously. But last year when I went to play football on the invitation of one my friend, I got a hint of my poor ability to run and play. This proved to be eureka moment in my life, because upon subsequent experiments I got to know that my health was really in danger. I frequently tested my breathing ability by running, swimming and walking, and it was shocking to know that I was not now so much fit though my age-fellows and close friends were still able to play very well. I committed myself to start my
  17. Hello everyone, I am working on a book right now called "How I Quit" which will be a collection of 30-45 brief essays from former smokers on how they successfully quit smoking. Each interviewee will essentially write how they started smoking, the struggles they had over the years (health, failed attempts, etc.), ultimately how they overcame the addiction and end with tips/tricks that worked for them and, finally, how it has bettered their life. Each interviewee will be only identified by name (first name and last initial), and age. This 'interview' will be more of a free-flowing arti

  19. Remove the desire to smoke and you will never smoke again. Practice on removing the desire to smoke until you firmly believe that you get nothing from it. Until then, use your smoking addiction to help you quit smoking. That’s right, you read correctly. You, me and millions more rationalized smoking even though we knew the consequences. Use those same veteran rationalization skills to rationalize quitting smoking. Think about that for a minute. If we could rationalize smoking knowing full well the damaging effects it had on our health, why can’t we rationalize quitting smoking knowing f

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
